I was surprised to discover that not only was piping a big thing outside Scotland, but that there was also a European Pipe Band competition. Here’s the advert I created for this year’s event. Over a hundred pipe bands from all over the continent amassed in Forres to take part.
I imagine this was a lot of fun both for those attending and those taking part, although the idea of a hundred pipe bands playing at once reminded me of the Gary Larson cartoon where a Maestro is shown to his room in hell and it’s occupied by a large number of banjo players.
